Create: Fun Film Facts

Permalink 8 Comments

Everyone calm down. I can feel the rage brewing through this horrible connection I have at the moment. Film. It has taken on mythical proportions in the consumer, prosumer, and online worlds. For the pros, no, they are busy making a living and digital is the name of the game, but film has such an incredible, funky history I thought it would be fun to share a few of the oddities I’ve learned along the way. I processed my first roll of film in darkroom at San Antonio College in 1988. I rolled the film on top of itself and the emulsion came off in my hand. I knew I was hooked. We built fires to warm chemistry and processed TRIX in straight Dektol. That was the time and the place. Snowflakes beware, not every photographer gets a trophy. Take your lumps and enjoy the process. Get it, process?
